Miliband the Bottler crawls back – the first of many

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

David Miliband, the man termed a ‘coward’ by journalists for getting the press all excited about challenging Gordon Brown for the Labour leadership and then bottling it, has crawled back to the UK from his ‘charidy work’ in the US hoping no doubt to win a place leading a new left-centre party without having to fight anyone for it. Their rallying point is to reverse Britain’s democratic decision to leave the EU. But then he was a man scorned as a popular brand of seedless orange – a reference to his lack of fertility rather than his faith, I gather.

Meanwhile, those on the exit side who currently have no option other than voting Conservative or not voting at all are watching carefully for the emergence of a new pro-Brexit party before 2022 for whom to cast a ballot. Nothing too right-wing – neo-Thatcherite would do nicely. With a little clear water between the new party and the politics of race-hate that characterises those scorned as ‘Gammons’ by the new left (who in return, it’s fair to say, are termed ‘Soy-Boys’). Racists in need of a home can always try one of the far-right clones on offer – I think there are currently two, but I may be mistaken. Neither will win anything, but their members can console themselves with the racial purity of their votes or something.  And I know some of you will give me a kicking for that – but I feel obliged to re-state from time to time that I support a distinct British identity open to anyone of whatever colour, creed, sex or faith, that I am utterly hostile to ideologies inimical with Britishness but welcoming to any minority persons wanting to join the club.  

New parties of left and right may rise, but they will also become subsumed into our parliamentary duopoly. Or rather 2½ party system. It all comes down to votes – the blue party now needs to consolidate Hovis-land and the red party needs quinoa-chewers and Waitrose-shoppers. 

Does this mean the poles are about to flip? That the Conservatives, traditionally the party of the South-East of England, becomes the party of the Midlands and North, whilst Labour deserts its Northern heartlands and settles-in within the M25? Interesting.

So of course we’ll see all the dags, liggers and chancers such as Miliband drifting back; prepare for names and faces you haven’t seen for a decade or more suddenly doing interviews on ‘Today’ or popping up on ‘Newsnight’. We’re in for another of those major political re-alignments. Now is the time for the millionaires and billionaires to place their stakes and buy their players, currently on options contracts of course until Brexit pans out a little more.  

One thing is certain; those of we polemicists who subside on a mix of satire and cruel invective won’t be short of targets for a year or two.
